I turned on my dryer and there is absolutely no heat at all....Before I buy anything I wanted to know if this sounded like just the heating element??? Thank you!!!
Answer Hello Chass. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Drying had not ran in a while. But when I went to laundry room getting clothes of top of dryer. The dryer was hot to touch. I unplugged and left it all night. I plugged it back in next day and dryer ran but didn't heat at all. Does this sound like a heating element? If so what element would i need to purchase?
Answer Robert, Based on your post, you're on track. You most likley had something small and metal laying across the element and touching the casing. Tghat would cause the dryer to be warm, when not in use, and would eventually cause the element to short out and not heat in the next time used. There is only one heating element 5300622034 but you have the option of replacing the assembly 131553900 . Either way you'll need to dismantle the top and front panels, and remove the drum to access the heater it's located inside the cabinet behing the drum.
I turned my Affinity 8700 on and when drying it smells like something is burning there is no lint or anything clogged.
Answer Hello Heather. You need to check and see if there is any burnt spots inside the unit to lead you to the sorce of the smell. Also, make sure the ventig is not clogged on the inside of the dryer.
I want to replace just the coil, but I can not get the old one out of the block, is there a way to do this?
Answer Hello Pat. You will have to bend the tabs on the ends straight and slide the terminals out and replace with the new element 5300622034. Make sure the element is not touching the metal anywhere on the unit.
I think that this is the right heating element for my model but I was just wondering if my model had 1/4 in terminal size or 5/16 in?
Answer Hello Will! Yes, the heating element 5300622034 is the correct heating element. Your unit has 5/16 terminals on the coil/housing assembly. Thanks!
my dryer when i push the start buttom just make a sound like "click",a tecnician ck the board plate (green plate)and is ok,before i had a problem, the dryer not work because the electric dryer heating element was broke,so was easy to me just tied together.do you think this is the problem and changing the element fix the problem?
Answer Ernesto, Did the technician check the the thermal limiter 134120900 for an "open" circuit ? If the dryer overheated and the fuse opened, the power to the control and motor are eliminated, and the dryer wont start and run. Replacing the element will not solve the start and run issue with the dryer, but it does need to be replaced 131553900 , not just for heating, but for safety as well. Thanks
I ordered a heating coil for my dryer and I was wondering if I ordered the right part. The part number I ordered is 5300622032.
Answer Hello Debra! According to the appliance model number supplied the replacement heating coil should have been 5300622034 (our part number 5300622034). Thanks!
Replace the heater element still no heat. What I check next?

I replaced the heating element and now when the dryer is started it shoots sparks out and when turned off over night stayed hot to the touch
Answer Hello Linda. The element 5300622034 is touching metal and will need to be replaced again and this time make sure it is not touching any of the metal on the unit. Hope this helps.
